Facebook’s Boost Your Business tour stopped in Lansing on Tuesday, bringing in a crowd that included small business owners and state and local politicians.
Social media experts showed area entrepreneurs how to take advantage of both Facebook and Instagram to maximize their business and ideas. Attendees saw how social media is used by millions of businesses to get noticed and sell their product.
Congressman Mike Bishop, a self-proclaimed small businessman and heavy Facebook user himself, helped Facebook officials provide tips and best practice tools to many who didn’t realize the power social media can have on profitability. Congressman Bishop has a total of three Facebook accounts and says he sees the value of being active online and is glad these social media experts were in mid-Michigan to assist.
“Facebook has given them an opportunity to learn how to use Facebook to expand their business and tell people about it and so I’m excited for them.”
Facebook’s Boost Your Business tour continues in May with stops in New Mexico, Illinois, and New York.
